Sam - Man it is about time you hooked up with some of your fellow THP'ers and hit a few! We will have a few more get togethers and I know you will be with us sometime in 2011. Kelly called the Pro shop at Long Shadow yesterday and they are open for play Sunday so hopefully most of the white stuff will be melted. If not, I will make sure to have some orange balls in my pants. Or yellow ones:freaked-out:
Long Shadow - 1 mile from I-20 Exit 114
Slammin'SAM - 2 miles from I-20 Exit 194
So you'll be 'Getting Together' just 83 miles away, just over an hour to Madison for me - and I have to work Saturday and Sunday. All I can say is "Rats!"
BTW - they got 6 inches of snow and ice in that area - I hope it is gone by Sunday - the forecast is great. And when you are done, ya might want to go a few miles toward Atlanta to Exit 98 and eat at the Blue Willow Inn. It is a Southern buffet in an antebellum type mansion, very nice, about $18 (and at their website is a 20% off deal).
Dawg -- It will be alot of fun Saturday morning for sure. I went out today and played and the course is in good shape considering the ice/slush stuff we have been dealing with the last few days. The fairways were actually pretty dry. I suppose the heavy winds we had yesterday did the trick... See ya Saturday morning!Just checked with theweatherchannel.com and the sun in shinning the next couple of days with temps in the 40's and 50's the next 3 days. The lows at night will be 32, so it is looking pretty good for Sunday. I wish I could be there Sunday, but I am really looking forward to Saturday morning so I get to meet RxGus and SethO. I am excited about that and playing golf is an added bonus.
+1 on the Blue Willow Inn my wife and I really do like to eat there. I know there will be more opportunities for THP'ers to get together soon.
My understanding is I am gonna play Sat morn @ 9 & KellyBo is gonna play in the p.m. Kelly does not like the cold and I am getting to the age that I rarely play 36 anymore. Just a fact of life. Looking forward to meeting you Sat.DD,
You joining us for both rounds saturday or just in the afternoon?
I hate I missed getting to meet you Mary, maybe next time through. I live only 20 minutes from Lake Jonesco Golf Course.Y'all have yerselves a rip tootin good ole time. I'm pretty darn sure your gonna be happier than a pig in slop and a three legged dog in a used pet store playing golf with Ole Gray & KellyBo I know I was when I played with them last week, wind & all!
Sounds good, I was thinking about coming over this afternoon and getting in a round, do you think you will be open this afternoon?Tee time set for 1:00 pm on Sunday but the greens still have snow and it is a tentative tee time. We can play 5 people as long as we keep up pace and let people through if necessary! If anyone else wants to join, we can always have two groups too.
